With our busy back to school schedules, most parents at some point during the week find themselves hitting the drive-thru. Instead of handing each kid their burger, fries and drink separately – where invariably messes end up on the seats and floor of your car – place everyone’s order into a plastic caddy. Kids can balance it on their knees, whilst keeping messes contained in the caddy. This method also works great for road trips.
